Background: The Pulmonary Functional Status Scale (PFSS) is a self-administrated, paper-and-pencil questionnaire designed to measure functional status outcomes in the areas of physical, mental, and social daily functioning in patients with chronic pulmonary disease. The aims of this study are to (1) describe the demographics of a population of older adults who are attending a senior center activity (2) obtain scores for "normative" functional status using the Pulmonary Functional Status Scale and (3) compare scores for participants with and without pulmonary disease to test the discriminate ability of the PFSS in older adults. Methodology: Design: A descriptive comparative design will be used to discriminate functional status in a population with and without lung disease. Sample: This study will use a convenience sample comprised of 124 adults who do not have identified pulmonary disease attending senior centers in an urban area. The inclusion criteria are (a) adults over 65 years old able to read and write English in order to understand the purpose, risks and benefits of the study. All senior center attendees will be offered the opportunity to participate in the study; those who do not report a history of lung disease will be counted toward the goal of 124 participants for "normative data". Procedure: The researcher has obtained the support of the center director. The center director will assist in identifying appropriate times to access seniors attending the center. Data Collection: The researcher or research assistant will explain the study to attendees and obtain the informed consent. Participants will then complete the demographic sheet and the PFSS. Data analysis: Demographic data will be examined using descriptive statistics. PFSS total and subscale scores will be calculated for all participants. The t-test for independent samples will be used to compare groups with and without lung disease.
